for joining us. i'm fredricka whitfield. the top stories we're following for you right now, the vatican is sapphiring back against media reports on sex, money and gay priests calling them unverified or completely false would if italian publications claim pope benedict decided to resign the same day he received an explosive report on a gay lobby lurking in the vatican. cnn's senior international correspondent ben wedeman is in rome. >> they are blasting in uncharacteristically strong terms, fredricka, are these reports, reports that appeared in a daily newspaper, "la repubblica" and a week live magazine panorama which suggests that indeed this group of three cardinals who were assigned by pope benedict to look into wrongdoing in the vatican found or allegedly uncovered, according to these publications a network of gay priests within the vatican who were being blackmailed according to these reports by a network of male prostitutes in rome. now, the vatican is roundly denying that these reports taking place, accusing the italian media of trying to influence the conclave, that group of 116

grace transforms us and makes us new. this would be historical. the last time a pope resigned happened 600 years ago. that would be pope gregory iv in 1415. the very first pope to resign was pope clement in the year 101, 1,100 years ago roughly that the first pope resigned. many questions about whether popes in modern times think resignation is acceptable or not. pope benedict said, in fact, made it very clear that being able to resign was acceptable and made this part of the statement released from the vatican, both strength of mind and body is necessary, and lots of questions, of course. we know the date he would be stepping down, which would be february 28th. many questions about why now? mep notice that the pope is much more frail in recent months, and the question would be unbelie unbelievably unusual. let's go to nic robertson joining us by phone. nic, lots of questions. nic live in london this morning. a bit of a stunner. was there any indication that this resignation was coming? >> absolutely none whatsoever, and the last few months, the pope started a twitter account, not what
white paper has just come out and in these 16 pages, this reveals when the united states can use lethal force against an american linked to al qaeda. talked to critics, they say the scariest aspect of the 16-page memo is its lack of detail. for some time, a number of lawmakers have been calling for the release of material detailing what guidance the president uses to call for a drone strike. the most high profile incident is the death of anwar al awlaki and al qaeda leader and american killed in a drone strike in yemen, in 2010. his father is suing multiple u.s. officials for the death of his son, and his grandson, abdul rahman, killed in a separate drone attack. >> i don't necessarily agree with what some of the things he said. but does that men they should kill him outside the law. >> as painful as it was to see your son killed, did you in the back of your mind expect that to happen? >> in anwar it was expected because he was under target killing. but how they go and kill abdul rahman, small boy, u.s. citizen from denver, colorado. >> no doubt, this leaked paper from the department of

. lots of discussion surrounding this. happy you're with us this morning. >> it is wednesday, we're halfway there, february 6th, 5:00 a.m. in the east. let's get started. we are learning a lot more this morning about the fbi raid that saved a kidnapped boy this alabama. it turns out the raid that freed ethan came just in the nick of time because jimmy lee dykes, the man who snatched the child off a school bus and held him captive for close to a week had his bunker rigged with a pair of bombs. this morning bomb technicians are still looking for even more explosives at the scene. victor blackwell is live from midland city. and victor, ethan turns six today. it's his birthday and this morning new details about his rescue. >> reporter: john, we also have new details about the seemingly premeditated method of this operation to kidnap ethan and for the first time we are seeing the crime scene thanks to new photos from the fbi. four feet below this spot is the bunker where jimmy lee dykes held ethan hostage for a week. this is the pipe of fbi says dykes told agents to use to communicate
to be with us. >> so the replacement of the pope's pacemaker had nothing to do with his resignation? kind of hard to believe. >> reporter: nothing may be overselling it. there was no indication the pope was having eminent heart problems but obviously he himself had suggested that his age and diminishing strength and concerns about his long-term health were in the mix year, and his heart problems undoubtedly part of that. friends who worked with then cardinal joseph ratzinger in the vatican knew that but prior to that no one knew. popes don't face the same pressure to reveal medical records ads presidents or presidential candidates and i would suggest that today's revelation may well add some pressure that some cardinals are already feeling to be more concerned about potential health problems of men that may be considering to succeed benedict xvi. >> john allen reporting live from the vatican. >>> today in chicago two gang members are due in court charged with the murder that has become a keystone in the national debate over gun violence. they're accused of shooting 15-year-old honor stude

'm surprised any of us made it out. but they are here today. and i would ask these soldiers, this band of brothers, to stand and accept the gratitude of our entire nation. >> there were many lessons from cop keating. one of them, our troops should never, ever be put in a position where they have to defend the indefensible. but that's what these soldiers did for each other, in sacrifice driven by pure love. and because they did, a grieving family was able to welcome their soldier home one last time and more soldiers are alive today to carry on, to keep alive the memory of their fallen brothers, to help make sure that this country that we love so much remains strong and free. what was it that turned the tide that day? how was it that so few americans prevailed against so many is we prepared for the reading of the citation, i'll leave you with the words of clint himself. because they say something about our army and they say something about america, they say something about our spirit, which iwill never be broken. we weren't going to be beat that day, clint said. we're not going to back d
